Animals, especially pets, deserve to be well taken care of so it's really heartbreaking when we see humans being cruel to animals, especially dogs, which are considered to be man's best friend.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) has released a shocking footage of sick and dying puppies dumped in buckets in Stockport.
Peter Jones, Grace Banks, formerly known as Lily Cooper, and Julian King had earnings of over £35,000 a week by the means of selling and importing sick and dying puppies to new owners. The three used fake names, homes and even their own "pedigree registration" company to trick buyers who thought they purchased health puppies raised in a good home.
After the trio were sentenced at the Manchester Magistrates' Court, RSPCA released details of their five-year investigation, the largest in their history.
RSPCA chief inspector Ian Briggs, speaking after the sentencing, said: “They left a trail of broken hearted people in their wake. People who handed over their money in good faith for what they had been told would be a happy and healthy new member of the family. Instead, what many were left with was a huge vet bill and the devastation of seeing a much loved pet go through the agony of disease and sickness. This case has lifted the lid on the levels of deceit these people will go to in order to make money without any consideration for the sickness and suffering of the puppies they were selling.”
